Chevy Protecting First Responders with Safer Police Tahoe

Police departments and first responders around the nation now have the option to be a little safer with the announcement of the new 2018 Chevy Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV). The newest version of Chevy’s popular SUV includes new technology to help public servants avoid crashes or reduce the chance of injury. “We want to protect our protectors and help them get home safely at the end of every shift,” according to GM VP Ed Peper. “The safety technologies we are introducing on the Tahoe PPV may serve as a second set of eyes.” You can see these new technologies for yourself when you inspect the entire Tahoe lineup at Chapman Chevrolet in Tempe.

Driver Assistance Package First of Kind

As far as PPVs go, Chevy’s new Enhanced Driver Assist Package is the first of its kind. This suite of technology includes programs designed to either alert the driver to a potential problem, take over vehicle functions, or just offer a safer environment. They are:

  • Power Adjustable Pedals: Drivers use the 10-way power seat and this feature to find the optimum driving position for both control and comfort.
  • Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking: Senses an impending collision and automatically applies the brakes to reduce the severity of a collision, or avoid a crash if at all possible.
  • Forward Collision Alert: This system determines the closing speed of the PPV and the objects in its way. The system alerts the driver to the danger with a series of beeps and seat vibrations.
  • Lane Keep Assist: If the turn signals are not activated and the PPV starts to drift out of its lane, this feature gently guides the vehicle back into the proper lane.
  • Safety Alert Driver Seat: Gives the driver the option of seat vibrations instead of audible warnings.

Helps Officers with Multiple Tasks

“When they’re on road patrol, police officers are constantly multitasking,” said retired Michigan police chief Theodore Quisenberry. “Now when officers are scanning their surroundings, so is their vehicle. That will help them stay safe.”

Tahoe Capable of Many Tasks

Along with being an excellent PPV and vehicle suited for many public service tasks, the Chevy Tahoe is a confident, capable SUV that’s perfect for hauling people and cargo. With the power to haul and tow large loads, the Chevy Tahoe is perfect for family vacations, taking the team to soccer practice or just heading out on a weekend adventure. The new driver assistance features also make this one of the safest vehicles you can own. Check out the all-new Tahoe when you take a trip to Chapman Chevrolet in Tempe.
